WAIKATO HUNT CLUB.
(From Our Own Correspondent.) . CAMBRIDGE, Monday. The annual meeting In connection withthe above club was held at Cambridge on Saturday evening, the Master (Mr Normaii Banks) being In the chair. The balancesheets of the Hunt Club and of. the Hunt Club Races were submitted for approval. Both were very satisfactory, for although, Us the chairman pointed out, they appeared to aay %, Sone to the bad to the tune of about £38, such was'really not the case, for they had permanent improvements to considerably above that value. They had erected new kennels at a cost of £37; had i Imported new'hounds from the Old Country, costing £27;. had erected a judge's box, £7; had paid the secretary £83, the half of \yhlch should have been paid the previous year; and there were- still subscriptions to come in amounting to about £37, of which fully the half was good; so they were really lv a better position than they were the previous year. The balance-sheets were approved and adopted. The following committee was elected:—Messrs N. Banks, T, W. Brown, H. Wyatt, 11. Crowther, It. Dodd, M. Wells, 3. Grahnm, It. Alexander, T. Clarkln, \V. Laxtoii, S. Worspe, C. Potts, W. Taylor, and A. W. Jones. The Master and Huntsman were appointed meets committee, and Mr M. J. Douglas reappointed secretary. The chairman said they had received applications for affiliation from Ngaruawahia and Pirongla residents. He understood Ngaruawahia wanted Aye meets, Pirongla a couple, and their old friends and supporters at Whatnwhata usually had four, so that would mean there could only be about 14 held In the Cambridge district. Mr Worspe said they would have 38 members at Ngnrtia wahlu, and they would like three meets at that place and two at TnnI plrl. On behalf of the Whatnwhata huntßinen Mr La_ctou said they would be content \ with three meets. It was eventually decided the hounds should meet five times at I Ngaruawahia, three at Whatnwhata, and two at pirongla. The chairman Bald the I club had taken £100 worth of debentures in the Walkato Central Agricultural Association, which paid 5 per cent Interest, and I tbey had leased the racecourse from that [ association for three days in earh year (if required.) at £5 per day.
